The Lenovo Multimedia Remote would be a nice addition to your HTPC. It’s small, wireless and gives you control over mouse and text inputs. The price isn’t bad either at $60. With these types of strange remote designs I like to see the reviews on them. The GlideTV remote came across better than I thought. The Lenovo remote wouldn’t be a full time media center remote but used for text entry.
